Description 

This climb starts in a jumbled flake system with good finger locks and solid nut placements. At the top of the flake, clip a bolt and move slightly right and then up an easy, runout face, heading for the obvious crack. A short juggy crack section leads to a beautiful right leaning thin hands/off fingers crack. Follow this up to a mussy hook anchor. Two rappels (or two ropes) to the ground.


Protection 

nuts, cams to 2", mussy hook anchor

Bring extra 1.25" pro (eg green .75 camalot) unless you have tiny hands!

Splitter crack climbing at the Gorge? That's unpossible!
